Free Produce Starting Tuesday March 30th
If you were the kid who loved vegetables... Thanks, you made the rest of us look bad and most likely eat a lot healthier than we would of had it not been for you parents bragging about you and your well balanced eating habits... hahahaha. I laugh as I'm writing this because I was that kid that loved my veggies. Maybe you were the kid who had to hear your parents saying " kids in third world countries wish they had vegetables to eat". Regardless of how you grew up as adults we all know the importance of fresh produce for our health and we're also aware that some people are really struggling to put food on the table. The good news is that the Salvation Army is giving away free produce to low income families in Ada county.
"We have an unprecedented amount of produce right now," said Major Thomas Stambaugh in a ktvb interview. "We are excited to be expanding our Client Choice Food Pantry by adding additional fresh food options." added The Salvation Army Boise Corps Officer.
How do you get your hands on the produce? Simply stop by the the Salvation Army Food Pantry at 9492 West Emerald Street in Boise. The Pantry is open Tuesday through Thursday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Salvation Army is also kicking off a seasonal farmers market program that will start in June and run through October. It's important to note that the farmers market will not be open every Saturday during that time. Feel free to check the Salvation Army Website for exact dates and times. If you know anyone in Ada County that's in need of food assistance please forward them this info.
